>>> Plastic Bottle Boat

We’ve had smaller scale examples of a boat based around plastic bottles… now another person intends a trans-oceanic voyage in such a craft.

  • An adventurer is building a sailboat out of thousands of recycled plastic soda bottles
  • He plans to sail it this spring from California to Australia, a journey of 11,000 miles
  • Expedition leader is David de Rothschild, scion of a wealthy British banking family
  • Boat, the Plastiki, will be a symbol of how consumer waste can be repurposed
